Do you have a patient with aphasia?

They can be referred to UBC – SNAP (Student Northern Aphasia Project) at UHNBC.

UBC SNAP can support patients in the following ways:

  • Speech Language Pathology (SLP) students will run aphasia therapy groups
  • Open to any adult with aphasia who lives in the Prince George area
  • Will run Tuesday and Thursdays (in either a morning or afternoon group) from April 24 – July 19, 2018
  • Information nights will be available for families to learn communication strategies

You can refer patients with aphasia to UBC – SNAP with the UBC Student Northern Aphasia Project (SNAP) referral form (also available in MOIS and at DocumentSource)
